Salifert KH/Alkalinity Test Kit

Calcium is not the only substance that corals and coraline need for them to grow. Carbonate and bicarbonate are also necessary and these two substances can have a main effect in stabilizing or buffering the pH at the correct levels of 8.1 to 8.4. in the aquarium

Total carbonate and bicarbonate concentration is also called alkalinity or carbonate hardness. For a stable system the alkalinity should not fluctuate by more than 5% from the optimum level of approximately 2.8 meq/L ie a maximum fluctuation of 0.14 meq/L.

Salifert KH/Alkalinity Test Kit is sensitive enough to detect small changes in alkalinity levels, measuring in 0.1 meq/L increments and showing a very sharp color change.

Sufficient for 100 to 200 trials.
